Student Financial Aid

Contact us

The University of Washington Office of Student Financial Aid is here to assist students and families through the financial aid process.  We have dedicated staff members available during office hours to respond to your questions.

If you are inquiring on the behalf of a student, they must provide their consent before we can release information protected under FERPA regulations.  Students may authorize the release of their financial aid information on MyUW.

If you plan a drop-in visit or a long distance call, bear in mind that the office and phone lines are busiest at the beginning of the day, the week, and the quarter.
